[resolved] Generated Image From Video (2 posts)

    It appears that the image generated by default from videos is 480 x 360
    However on the slider that my socrates template uses, (nivo.jquery) Featured images for the slider to display properly need to be 600 x 311.
    In the image editor images can only be scaled down. Is there a way to get the image generated to be 600 x 311? Im pretty new to this so if there is a way please give me step by step instructions.
    Thank you

    The plugin requests the image from the video provider's api.

    YouTube as an example:
    Get video info for the video id "ABkQ96dh0eQ": http://youtube.com/get_video_info?video_id=ABkQ96dh0eQ
    The result contains the "iurlmaxres" variable which is an encoded url to the highest result video image available: http://i1.ytimg.com/vi/ABkQ96dh0eQ/maxresdefault.jpg

    This is then downloaded and set as featured image. For some videos this image might be very small.. Nothing I have any impact on.
